South African author and evangelist Angus Buchan says that God is angry with Cape Town, and that it will only rain once citizens “repent”.

The author – known for his popular biography Faith Like Potatoes – made the statement at a media briefing in the Mother City where he is promoting an upcoming national prayer meeting set to take place next month.

“God is not happy with Cape Town,” Buchan stated at the media briefing. “He’s had enough! …Of the abuse of women and children, gangsterism, lawlessness – He’s had enough.”

Buchan continued: “Segregations, the gap between the extreme rich and the extreme poor – He’s had enough.”

“It will rain when the people repent. Which people? The people of Cape Town and the Western Province.”

Buchan called for a national prayer meeting on March 24, in Mitchells Plain because it is “the hottest place in South Africa”. The aim of the meeting is to stand up against crime, prostitution, hatred, racialism, alcoholism, drug addiction, murder and disrespect for human life.

Buchan hails from Zambia, but was born in Zimbabwe. He has since moved to Greytown, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The farmer, author and evangelist has a massive following with South African farmers; and his biography, Faith Like Potatoes, was turned into a movie released in 2006.

The City of Cape Town recently announced the postponement of Day Zero from April to mid-May due to the agricultural industry’s water usage reduction.

Cape Town’s dam levels is currently sitting at 25.5%.
